PACO General Membership Meetings

We received great feedback regarding the speakers and topic after our General Membership meeting last week, and for the online livestreaming access! We are currently working to arrange similar meetings and remote access in March and April, so look for upcoming announcements and information!

Office Management / Human Resources

The CBA is presenting a series of six classes beginning today, designed to teach the fundamentals of office and human resources management—from hiring to firing and everything in between. The course will be taught by employment law attorneys and human resources professionals, and is CLE Easy Pass eligible. Please share this information with your office managers and attorneys.

Your Primary and Secondary Representatives, who serve as liaison for PACO to the NFPA, are preparing to attend the 2018 Joint Conference combined with the Region III Spring Meeting. Please log onto NFPA’s web site for additional information and to keep apprised of the benefits available to you through your membership with NFPA, which is provided via your PACO membership. If you have questions or topics that you would like to have discussed, please contact PACO’s NFPA Primary Representative, Brittany Hays, via nfpa@pacoparalegals.org, or PACO’s NFPA Secondary Representative, Callie Kessler, at CKessler@reminger.com.
